About Eggless Cumin Lentil Cookies Recipe

Eggless Cumin Lentil Cookies are unique in taste and texture. The addition of red lentil makes the cookies healthy and nutritious. I have used very less sugar in this recipe and added a bit more salt. It is a savory cookie which tastes little salty and little sweet. This goes very well with the evening tea. This is an eggless recipe so vegetarian can also enjoy them. The texture of this cookie is bit crunchy. In every bite, you get the taste of cumin and lentil which is irresistible.

Ingredients to make Eggless Cumin Lentil Cookies

  • Maida/ all purpose flour - 1 cup + 1 tablespoon for dusting
  • Red Lentil / masoor dal - 1/2 cup
  • water - 11/2 cup
  • Unsalted butter - 1/2 cup, melted
  • sugar - 1/4 cup
  • salt - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Baking powder - 1/2 teaspoon
  • cumin Seeds - 1 tablespoon
  • curd - 11/2 tablespoon

How to make Eggless Cumin Lentil Cookies

  1. Wash the lentil/dal and put in the pressure cooker along with 11/2 cup water. Wait for 2 to 3 whistles under medium heat or until the dal is boiled properly.
  2. Allow to release the pressure and mash the dal. Allow it to cool and take a 1/4th cup of boiled and mashed dal to be used in the cumin lentil cookies recipe.
  3. Dry roast cumin seeds for 1 to 2 minutes and keep aside.
  4. Take melted butter in a big bowl and add sugar into it and mix well.
  5. Next, add curd into the bowl and beat well with the other butter and sugar.
  6. Add 1/4th cup of boiled and mashed dal and mix well again.
  7. Now add the dry ingredients including flour, salt, baking soda and cumin seeds into wet mixture and make a smooth dough. If the dough is too dry you can add some boiled lentil/dal.
  8. Allow resting the dough in the refrigerator for 10 to 15 minutes with a cling film.
  9. After that preheat the oven at 180 degree C for 5 minutes and line a cookie/baking tray with a butter paper.
  10. Roll the dough by dusting flour and thickness should be the almost 1/4th inch.
  11. Cut them into desired shapes using a cookie cutter and place them on lined cookie tray.
  12. Bake the cookies at 180 degree C for 12 to 15 minutes.
  13. Allow them to cool and store them in an airtight container.

My Tip:

We require only 1/4 cup of mashed and boiled lentil/dal, it is difficult to pressure cook small quantity, hence we boiled dal in a larger quantity.The remaining boiled dal can be used to prepare regular dal recipes.
